Ski Moraloppet and help breast cancer research

Trail conditions and temperatures look to be near perfect for Saturday’s Feb. 1st Moraloppet Ski for the Cause. Proceeds from the race go toward the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation for breast cancer.

Skiers can choose to ski either a 21km race or a 10.5km race or a 5km tour. The course is on portions of the Vasaloppet race course at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center and is part of the Vasaloppet Winter Race Series.

The registration fee is $25. Skiers can register online here or on race day at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center.

Fat Vasa Race Course and Sunday February 9th Race Schedule Changes

Due to unseasonably warm weather and high water, the river crossings for the Fat Vasa bike race are not frozen making it not possible to cross the rivers on the Fat Vasa trail. Therefore, we will hold the Fat Vasa on the groomed trails at the Nordic center.  The course will be one or two loops around a 15 km course and we will start both races together at 11:30 on Lake Mora.  

To accommodate this change, the Sunday race schedule has been slightly changed. Here are the new start times for the Sunday February 9, 2020 races:

8:30 a.m. – Sunday Classic 20 km ski race (no change in start time)

10:00 am – Spark Races (no change)

11:00 a.m. Mora Skijoring (30 minutes earlier)

11:30 a.m. Fat Vasa Fat Tire race 15 km and 30 km (new start times and new course length)

1:30 pm Miniloppet (no change)

We look forward to seeing you here in Mora for Vasaloppet weekend.

Vasaloppet volunteers honored at art show

The Many Faces of Vasaloppet sculpture project was on display at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center May 17-18. Visitors were able to see the aluminum casting of over 150 Vasaloppet volunteers as well as meet the artist, Keith Ravio and others who have assisted in the two-year project. The future vision is to have all the castings in a permanent outdoor display to honor the volunteer spirit of Vasaloppet USA.

Last Chance Ski Race, Saturday March 23, 2019 – STARTS 9 AM

The snow is melting quickly so let’s have a ski race before it’s all gone. We still have snow and fun trails at the Nordic Center, so we will groom the best Loop, 5-10km in length, and you can race 1 – 3 laps depending on length. Classic tracks will be set where conditions permit and we will likely have a Classic race.
The Top three male and female finishers in the longest classic and longest skate events will be recognized.
Race starts at 9 am. Registration begins at 7:15am Race day registration only. Last Registration accepted at 8:45AM NO LATE REGISTRATIONS so be sure to arrive early enough to register or you won’t be timed. Fee will be $1 per Kilometer, not to exceed $20.
Let’s hit the trails one last time for the season and have some fun – hope to see you here in Mora this Saturday!
